Matthew 2:6|A Ruler in Bethlehem

In Christmas, Matthew by Cody Weckerly

Two thousand years ago, a group of gentiles from the east called “wise-men,” journeyed to see the “King of the Jews” in Jerusalem when they were unexpectedly told he was not there. In response, Herod told the Jewish leaders to inquire where the Christ was to be born. After their search, the response was unanimous: “Bethlehem.” Today, we all are aware of this fact. But few actually ask, “Why Bethlehem?” In this message, Pastor Cody helps explain what else was understood about the coming Messiah based on Micah’s prophecy.
